“Wet Cyan Printing Plus!”   

Prepare for lots of fun and learning from this unique workshop!
This will be a potentially messy class, so you will need to dress accordingly.

Kit Fee: $20

We will try to purchase as much as possible in bulk to avoid gathering too many unusual supplies (example: plastic dishpans, glass, gloves, etc.).

Kit Includes:

  • Cyanotype solution. 

  • Exposure contact plates.

  • Additives.

  • A selection of specialty papers.

  • Handout.

Student Supply List:

  • Two (2) 1” foam brushes.

  • Ruler or straightedge – 18”.

  • Scissors.

  • Old bath towel.

  • Notebook.

  • Smartphone or tablet for photographing and editing.

  • A variety of papers and fabrics for printing (see below).

  • If you plan to print on fabric, natural fibers are recommended: cotton, linen, silk. Keep in mind the paper sizes listed below. Quiet, pale prints and old sheets are great. The tighter the weave, the crisper the print.

  • We will primarily be printing leaves. Bring some fresh or pressed flat, if possible. Flat objects (lace, sequin waste, washers, etc.) can also be used.

Lesley recommends 140lb hot press paper or a relatively smooth cold press. We will be tearing most pad sheets in half. If you choose to use full sheets of WC paper, 2 or 3 sheets, 22”x30”, will be sufficient.

- Strathmore series 400 – 11”x14” – mixed media pad (15 sheets – get two, if this is all you are selecting).

- Canson XI Watercolor Pad – 9”x12” (30 sheets)

- Fabriano studio – hot press WC pad (50 sheets)

Updated supply lists will be sent to participants prior to the workshop.

Member Workshop Fee will be approximately $200.

A $100 deposit will hold your place in the workshop.

Guild cancellation policies will apply to the deposit.

Balance and due date TBA.

All available spaces for this workshop have been filled, but if you are interested, please let us know and your name will be added to the wait list.
